NFT Drop

The NFT Drop contract is ideal when you want to release a collection of unique NFTs using the ERC721 Standard.

It allows you to define a set of conditions called claim phases in a sequence which defines when and how your users can claim an NFT from your drop; including allowlists, release dates, claim limits, and delayed reveals.

When you add NFTs to your drop contract, they are not minted at this point. You prepare everything for your users by lazy minting them, so that other wallets can mint them

Use Cases & Examples

You could use the NFT Drop contract to:

  • Release a PFP Collection where each NFT has a different combination of traits
  • Release NFTs of your artwork, and have your community mint them for a price
  • Create a restricted-access NFT drop, where only a specified list of wallets can claim NFTs

Using the Contract in the SDK

This page outlines how you can create and configure your NFT drop contract using the dashboard.

You can also use our Web3 SDK to create and interact with your contract.

Creating a NFT Drop Contract

Deploy the NFT drop contract to any of our supported networks using the button below.

Lazy Minting NFTs

Lazy minting is the process of uploading your metadata for your NFT(s) without minting them yet.

This is useful for when you want other wallets to mint NFTs from your drop into their own wallets.

To lazy mint NFT(s), click Create to lazy-mint a single NFT, or Batch Upload to lazy-mint multiple NFTs at once.

Create or Batch Upload Buttons

To get started, you can use one of our example files for CSV or JSON metadata.

Delayed Reveals

Delayed reveals allow you to reveal the contents of the NFT to the user later at a specific date and show a placeholder asset in the meantime.

  • Reveal upon mint: Collectors will immediately see the final NFT when they complete the minting.
  • Delayed Reveal: Collectors will mint your placeholder image, then you reveal it at a later time.

You have the option to add a delayed reveal to a batch of NFTs after you batch upload them.

Select Delayed Reveal

Setting Claim Phases

A claim phase is a set of conditions that define when and how your users can claim an NFT from your drop.

The NFT Drop contract supports multiple sequential claim phases.

Within a claim phase, you can define:

  • When the claim phase will start
  • How many NFTs do you want to drop
  • How much do you want to charge per NFT
  • What currency do you want to use
  • Which wallet addresses are allowed to mint (allowlist)
  • How many NFTs can be claimed per transaction
  • How many seconds do wallets have to wait between claims

To configure the claim phase, click the Claim Phases tab and Add Claim Phase.
